As any true fans of this site know, there are two things we love more than anything in all of geekdom (though we love all geek life, yo), Stars Wars and Lego. Well, three things if you include our recent obsession with Stranger Things. But outside of that, you hit us with Lego news or Star Wars news, we are all over it like Miss Piggy on Kermit (no idea why I went with “muppet reference there, by the way, but go with it, it circles back ina second). So, when we heard the announcement that the Lego sets and toys for Star Wars spinoff Rogue One were announced, we threw our hands in the air like this:
Not even kidding you, had you saw it you actually might have been terrified. BUT, we can show you the toys and if you choose to celebrate like a Muppet or not is completely up to you.
Sergeant Jyn Erso Buildable Figure
I smell a hero!
K-2SO Buildable Figure
Could this beat BB8 as Star Wars coolest new droid? Looks like it could.
Imperial Death Trooper Buildable Figure
I know as a ‘journalist’ (I put it in quotes because I use the term as loosely as you all do regarding myself) I am not supposed to pick favorites, but MY GOD THAT IMPERIAL DEATH TROOPERS IS BADASS!
Like you can argue? Look upon this Lego Death personified and bow down before its greatness lest it miss you with three shots it fires blindly in your general direction. Don’t forget, Rogue One is a prequel taking place in first trilogy’s timeline. So technically, there are the Stormtroopers who still miss every shot.
And now, for further geeking out, here are some of the vehicles for the new Rogue One Lego sets:
Imperial Assault Hovertank
Note the pre-firing lasers included with some of the sets on this list. It’s awesome little touches like that that keep Lego fans Lego fans for life.
Yes, I know, it makes me giddy, too. But not like the following final entry, which full on gave me an asthma attack and I don’t even have asthma….
I can’t even say anything about this as I just peed my pants at its sheer majesty. Game over, this wins.
